Melbourne singer/songwriter and producer Hayden Calnin is back with a new track Fuck Collingwood, following the release of his reworks album Of Collingwood earlier this year.
This single is a heartfelt and deeply personal reflection on Calnin’s former suburb of Collingwood, a culmination of his last 10 years living there.
Hayden Calnin’s latest single Fuck Collingwood is an intimate but beautiful ‘fuck you’ to the inner-city suburb of Melbourne.
Speaking about the track, Calnin shared:
“I’d been living in and around Collingwood, a suburb of Melbourne, for the last 10 years. I’ve loved it, I’ve hated it, and finally I’d left it. ‘Fuck Collingwood’ is a reflection on my time living there, and about me realising that I had to get out of the city and find some space for a while, and go live near the ocean. At least for a little bit.”
Exploring the good, the bad and the ugly of Collingwood with lyrics such as “in an alley that’s all pissed in from a Friday night out drinking, in Collingwood'”, the song is a true journey.
The seamless layering of musical elements as the song progresses produces a contemplative and meticulous aura of magic. Even if you’ll staunchly defend Collingwood through to your last breath, you’ll love this song.
